NW shot is 99% of what I use. It is redropped shot. It is not as hard as Westcoast magnum, but is a lot less expensive. It is still harder than chilled. It flows through my loaders as good as any shot. It is far better than reclaimed. As far as size, seems to be # 7.5s with a few 8's and 9's, or #8's with a few 9's and 7.5's, Breaks targets well from the traphouse to 30 yards back as long as I do my part. Bill Hom
I use it pretty exclusively for practice loads. It is heavier than either RemSTS or West Coast Magnum shot. But it is just perfect for practice. At both the old Miramar club and at Santa Maria they mined our fields and the clubs sold bags at a very reasonable price to members.
